get rid of theme fonts in font dropdown

having 'theme fonts' always appearing at the top of the fonts dropdown is 
annoying as well as making me mouse more (as if it isn't bad enough how much 
more mousing the damn 2007 requires)
any way to get rid of it?

Word is a style driven application. If you format the document with styles 
rather than use manual formatting, there should be little need to use the 
fonts dialog.
There is no way I am aware of to remove the theme fonts from the top of the 
fonts list, but you can clear the recently used fonts list by editing the 
registry. Copy and paste the following to a notepad document (example shown 
is Word 2007).

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


Save it as FontListOff.reg
Merge it into the registry with Word closed. (right click the filename in 
Windows Explorer and select Merge)

To turn it back on again

Change  "NoFontMRUList"="1"

to start the list again (empty).

As for the mouse issues, Word has always made extensive use of keyboard 
shortcuts (the vast majority of which remain the same in Word 2007) and you 
can add to these with your own personal choices. Your fingers need rarely 
leave the keyboard.

Getting RichEdit's TOM/ITextDocument by its Window Handle?
I cannot get the sample code from microsoft's example here of looking up in the running object table by window handle for a RichEdit's ITextDocument (scroll midway down to subtitle: Interface from Running Object Table) I suspect the example code is in error as CreateFileMoniker makes no mention of working with a windows handle number passed as a hex string as the example shows...

Get 'Requesting data...' message
I moved my computer to a totally different domain. Ever since then I periodically get a screen that pops up while in Outlook that says 'Requesting data from server E01...' E01 is the Exchange server on the OLD domain. I am not connected to the domain on which this server resides. I've looked everywhere in my Outlook setup to try to determine why it's looking for E01 and I can't find it anywhere. I believe this is also causing some latency problems; for example, after composing an e-mail and clicking on Send, it can sometimes take 10-15 seconds before the e-ma...

why do I get sending message 2 of 2 when I only sent 1 email
When I send an e-mail, the status says sending 1 of 2 , sending 2 of 2. I only sent one e-mail. What was the second one for? There are no attachments, CCs or BCCs. Using Outlook 2007?

Cannot get fast forward or fast reverse to work with WMP 11
I am running Vista Home Premium on a HP G 217-EM Notebook which comes pre-installed with Windows Media Player 11. When I play cds and try to fast forward or fast reverse by keeping the fast forward or fast reverse buttons constantly depressed nothing happens. Why is this, and can anyone come up with a solution? Many thanks This doesn't work on my system either, so it's probably just a limitation of WMP.

How do you get Signatures to be in the email all the time?

I can't get Excell to do automatic backup

Font Size in Outlook 2003 Too Large
When I open Outlook to compose an email, the font size that is displayed while I'm typing is large, probably at an 18 font size (I am using Word as my editor). When I send the message and then look at it in the sent folder, the font is not enlarged. In the sent folder the font size corresponds to the setting that is shown on the toolbar while I am typing. It seems that the only place that the font is out of whack is on the display. Any suggestions as to how I can correct this? Thanks for your help. You're probably zoomed in.
